    thanks for the answer

    therefore,
    do I have to detach the RIGHT part (line coming from the front of the car) of the Pierburg??? (see image please)



    I wish you a nice day!

    PS: my V10 will reach January

    My car V10 looks slightly different from the picture. On my car there is only one pipe coming to the valve form the FRONT of the car. This is the one to detach and bung.

    Perfect, thank you to those who have posted pictures. I will be doing this as soon as I take delivery (or at least when I get the vehicle back home)

    Yes, I suggest just plugging the one input into the valve rather than the two exit pipes though.

    Yes, as 50 pence says, the last set of pics from stella shows the best way.
